What are frosting shots? They are sample-sized dollops of tasty frosting. Frosting shots have been around for years, but many cupcake bakeries are now offering them on their regular menu. Even if you don't see them on the menu, just ask. You may have to pay a small fee ($0.75 to $1.50) but it will be worth it. Some people are so hooked on the frosting that they don't even buy a cupcake!
I don't know who invented the frosting shot....but thank you!
